Man City vs Wolves: Predictions, Betting Tips & Odds
Manchester City look to maintain the pressure on Liverpool at the top of the Premier League with victory over an unpredictable but wealthy Wolverhampton Wanderers.
2019 has started with aplomb for Manchester City. First up was a win over title rivals Liverpool that swung the title pendulum somewhat back into City’s control, and second was an FA Cup thrashing of Rotherham.
If the start of the year is anything to go by then Wolves had better beware, especially as a home defeat to Crystal Palace in the Premier League was hardly the best way for Nuno Espírito Santo to kick off the new year.
The visitors record against City also leaves cause for concern having won just one of the last 10 contests between the two in all competitions.
However, Wolves have won 40% of their Premier League away games this season and wins over Tottenham and Chelsea is proof enough that Nuno’s side know how to raise their game.
Unfortunately for them, Manchester City pose a step up in class despite snatching a 1-1 draw back in August at Molineux.
City look back to their best and average over three goals per game at home this season whilst Wolves have managed just 11 on the road making a comfortable 3-0 home win the prediction for this one.
